The Written (Emaneska #1) by Ben Galley - Book Review 10, Dec

The Written is an action-packed tale full of tropes and monsters. It features a solid central character whose motivations drive him to chase down leads and unravel the far-reaching implications of the theft of an ancient grimoire. I give it high marks for a robust setting that feels like it has the depth and history needed to sustain a hefty epic fantasy narrative.
